Nueva Semilla Group's story

The ”NUEVA SEMILLA” [New Seed] Communal Association is in its second cycle in the Regional Office of the Andes. This community association has the participation of eight members. The board of directors has Adela as president.

The women's business' are different. Among them are: neighborhood store, macramé, sewing, fruit selling, a blanket and shawl weaving workshop, selling potato flour, selling vegetables, and pastries.

The president, Adela, is a 40 year old woman. She is single and has a daughter. This is her second year working with community associations, developing a business by herself.

At present, she sells fruit. She buys them in the area of El Tejar (from the trucks); with the loan she will take out, she plans on starting a weaving business. She will sell her product on Fridays at Extranca from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

When we asked her what she likes the most about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes the trainings.
